At Ventura, we like our work to speak for itself.  But sometimes, customers want to know even more about how we create our beautiful designs that are functional and good for website usability.  

Each team member at Ventura aggressively works to improve their skillset on a daily basis.  That’s right — Daily!  Every day we’re keeping in touch with other industry leaders to learn from their experience, and of course, to share ours.  

In addition to daily reading, we sometimes even get up from our office chairs and travel to conferences.  We’ve even been known to sponsor and exhibit at a few of these events.  Our Founder, Kevin Richards, is a recognized E-commerce, Yahoo! Store, and Internet Marketing expert.  He regularly speaks at industry conferences, including Internet Retailer and the Yahoo! Merchant Summit.  Kevin also has a weekly radio segment called Tech News with Kevin Richards on KDWN.com 720AM (50,000 watts terrestrial radio reaching thousands of listeners in Nevada, Arizona, California, and Utah).
